Why do we deal with body work in PSYCHONEUROENDOCRINOIMMUNOLOGY?
What is the band?
Because ’we work on the fascia to get to CONSCIOUSNESS.
THE BAND IS THE LARGEST APPARATUS OF BODY PERCEPTION.
So a distinction
must first be made between:
CONNECTIVE FABRIC and FIBROMUSCULAR BAND
The fascia is a layered membranous structure that goes from the skin to the deepest parts and has a function of:
part of the body.
The method aims to make a MODIFICATION OF THE CONSCIOUS STATE THROUGH
THE BIOTENSEGRITIVE EXPERIENCE OF THE BODY.
So we identify in the range THE UNIT OF COHERENCE and CONSCIOUSNESS of the biological
Of the method:
The fascia is located externally and internally in the muscles themselves and has the function of connecting the muscles with the organs and systems.
If the myofascial system is a
tensegritive structure, and it is organized in such a way that forces it
they are transmitted along the muscles, the connective tissue (tendons, ligaments etc.) and the bones.
In fact, the "myofascial chains" are groups of muscles
along the body that integrate through the fascia
to maintain posture and to ensure movement in all directions.
The fascia wraps around the whole organism, is an "endless network", and therefore potentially infinite
myofascial chains can exist.
Over the course of our lives, each of us uses our own myofascial chains on the basis of an organic underlying structure.
ROLE OF TENDONS
Due to their position, the tendons are also able to accumulate
a lot of elastic energy when they are stretched by the muscle, which they release to favor the sequence of movement (Pilat 2006).
Just as the fascia is able to support the muscles in movement and in the exercise of force, so it must be
considered as components that allow the reception of stimuli if it must allow the sensorimotor balance of the body (van der Wal 2012).
As we train, naturally appropriately ensuring the right rest for the myofascial system (remember that
most tendinopathies are tendon degenerations that mainly need rest; tendons accumulate more and more elastic energy so as to facilitate movement more and more.
The force that kangaroos, gazelles and other animals use to run and jump does not come from
the muscles, but from the tendons that function as very efficient springs (Schleip and Müller 2013).
THE FASCIAL SYSTEM IS THE LARGEST PERCEPTION APPARATUS.
RELATIONS BETWEEN BAND AND NERVOUS SYSTEM.
the conscious and subconscious ability to feel the position, orientation and motion of joints and muscles.
All the mechanoreceptors of the body, fascial and extrafascial, contribute to determining proprioception.
The muscles and fascial tissue
form a structural and functional unit in which the fascia acts as an "ectoskeleton" (van der Wal 2012): for
Indeed, studying the links between the connective tissue and the other tissues, relationships between the fascia and the nervous
system have been highlighted so tight that they make the myofascial system the largest body perception apparatus.
Of the nerve fibers that travel through the myofascial tissue, the sensory fibers are in fact numerically greater than the motor fibers
and end in the mechanoreceptors, receptor structures excitable by mechanical signals such as pressure, vibration, strains (Schleip 2003a).
Along the entire fascial body and the connected connective structures (e.g. dermis and adipose)
there are different types of mechanoreceptors, in particular 4 defined low-threshold receptors as a small stimulation is enough in the embryo (the caress of a hair) to activate them: these are the corpuscles of Pacini, Ruffini, Meissner and the discs of Merkel
(McGlone and Reilly 2010.
Each of these receptors has its own qualities: the Pacini and Meissner corpuscles adapt quickly to the stimulus, quickly ending to download (send information), while the Ruffini corpuscles and Merkel's discs adapt
slowly, continuing to excite the sensory fibers as long as the stimulus persists.
The corpuscles of Pacini and Ruffini, being in the depth of the dermis, almost in contact if not in the superficial fascia, have a very wide receptive field, while the
corpuscles of Meissner and the discs of Merkel, placed in the folds that bind epidermis and dermis, have a very narrow field, which makes them excellent for very fine perception, such as reading Braille (Bear et al. 2007; McGlone and Reilly 2010).
All these mechanoreceptors are essentially sensitive to vibrations: each has its own election frequency.
Stimuli that occur with a frequency of 40-80 Hz are received by Pacini's corpuscles and experienced as real vibrations, while stimuli
with a higher frequency activate Ruffini's corpuscles giving the sensation of a tactile "hum".
A frequency of 2-40 Hz determines a palpitation sensation in Meissner's corpuscles, while stimuli at an even lower frequency constitute the pressure felt by
Merkel's discs (McGlone and Reilly 2010).
On the other hand, in nature everything vibrates and oscillates, more or less regularly, and even good muscle stretching must be harmonious and not broken (Schleip and Müller 2013).
Music is not something
abstract, as certain technical perfectionists would like us to believe, but a real way of expressing itself that accompanies every man from the beginning to the end of his life. Already the newborn is able to recognize the same melody even if changed in pitch,
played with a different gait and by different instruments (Colazzo 2012).
The fibro-muscular fascia is therefore the means by which we can make a movement by means of a muscle chain.
The connective tissue, on the other hand, is the
constitution itself, let's say anatomical.
The connective tissue is an UBIQUITARY tissue.
